Blue jeans are a kid’s clothing staple, but if your kids are like mine were, holes in the knees were all too frequent…and the holes were only in the knees!
Recycling ingrained in my DNA would not let me part with a good pair of jeans just for “holey” knees, and with six kids, there were plenty. When knees started poking through, jeans were retired….to become blue jean quilts. (More on this in a later post.)
Quilts are not the only recycling idea for kids’ blue jeans. I found so many ideas, I decided to break this down into several posts. Every few weeks watch for more kids’ rooms recycled jeans ideas for pillows, chairs, quilts, artwork, rugs, containers, and unique ideas for pockets.
For today, here are a few random ways to recycle those good but holey jeans. Definitely good ways to “use it up” after it has been worn out!
|Boys, cars, and jeans….perfect match for recycling holey jeans into roads for your avid hot wheels collector.||Girls may want to play with the cars too but more likely they will find plenty of use for the teddy bear made from recycled blue jeans.|
|Cut blue jean legs below the knee holes, stitch the end, tie at the top, and you have a reusable gift bag.||Save your kindle or iPad with a blue jean cover and and use the overalls buckle to keep it secure.|
